Be careful you need a pre C of O inspection to know what your up against but keep in mind they want what they want The seller is avoiding it because they have gotten their money out of the property and don't want to deal with the C of O and the expenses it creates Be very careful if you can't comply you will be in trouble ... more

No doc loans are essentially a thing of the past. If you happen to find one, expect it to be extremely expensive.

You have asked this same question about this home and one on Simplex Ave. Both are not available to purchase.
If you are looking to buy a home you should be speaking directly with a local realtor who can help you find a home based on your needs/price , that is still available, and take your to view the homes that meet those needs.
Just curious have you even seen the homes you asked about? Were you considering buying a home sight unseen?

Rutgers is a great rental market. If you're looking to specifically rent to students I would encourage you to check out the Rutgers University off-campus housing page, and the service they offer to landlords to rent to students: is the official off-campus housing partner for Rutgers University, and their off-campus housing page will direct you there. To view the actual Rutgers off-campus page (as students would) you can click on the following link to get an idea of what's being offered in the area to students:

If you've got any questions about renting to Rutgers students feel free to email me

More likely expired or withdrawn from the market. As Michael mentioned, if sold and closed, the status should reflect that.

John Sacktig answered:
Yes, you can file a tax appeal.

In New Brunswick, as I know it.. There are tax abatements for some buildings/developments that were for 30 years that are in place. If a property sold, then the abatement was adjusted for the sale price by a ratio.. (Price going higher) But that was when the prices were low.. IIf the property is now sold lower than the abatement should adjust. But I am thinking you are not going to go below the original abatement.. as the whole build would have to be reassessed.

What building is this, Spring St? The Heldrich? I am curious as I know most of what is happening here and would like to inquire about it.

What does your agent say? They should know what they are selling!

Gina Chirico answered:
I'm trying,

Reading your question and your comment below, while I understand that your agent said this is an "as is" sale, that doesn't have any bearing on your bringing your contractor so you know what the house will cost for rehab. If the cost for rehab exceeds a certain amount, you may opt not to put an offer in. Offers should be based upon the most recent sold comps however with that being said, its still in your right to know an approximate rehab cost. As with a home inspection, is for your knowledge only as is bringing your contractor. You are not asking the seller to make any repairs but you have a right to know, what is wrong with the home, estimated rehab costs, etc. ... more

Robert Spinosa answered:

It can make good sense to do this, but it's harder to answer any more specifically without knowing all the details. Generally, you'd see more individuals avoid purchasing with a HELOC if they planned to keep the new property indefinitely. The obvious reason being that the line of credit will most likely have an adjustable rate with a cap at or near 18%.

But in today's real estate economy, if the HELOC is the only way to get financing, it may by default be the best way.
